Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-006
Budget: 10/16/09 - 10/15/11

A novel method of using fluctuations in laser backscatter from atmospheric aerosol concentrations to remotely measure wind speed and direction is proposed. Using pulsed laser beams projected from two small spotting telescopes and range gated detectors, we are able to remotely measure 2-D wind vectors at contiguous range intervals along a 3-km ta...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-451
Budget: 09/30/09 - 07/06/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The primary objective of this proposal is to develop a novel electrospray ion source operating inside the mass spectrometer, based on internal heating of small droplets and water clusters. The use of internal heating (contrary to external one by ambient gas) of micro-droplets will allow using electrospray at ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-050
Budget: 09/15/09 - 02/14/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Modern proteomics tasks necessitate combining fast high-performance chromatographic separations with high-resolution mass spectrometers capable of recording tens of high- quality mass spectra per second. While retaining high mass accuracy of recorded spectra, high throughput can be achieved in modern time-of-...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-280
Budget: 07/01/09 - 06/30/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The main goal of this proposal is to develop a novel MS interface device, capable to provide an efficient ECD/ETD-type fragmentation of peptide and proteins at any mass spectrometer including low-cost bench-top instruments such as single- and triple- quadrupoles. In this proposal we suggest using the novel hy...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-002
Budget: 06/16/09 - 02/09/10

An elastic backscatter lidar operating at a covert wavelength in the ultraviolet can be employed to perform high-precision three-dimensional pointing and tracking of small UAV targes in a tactical environment. Imaging of the rapidly pulsing lidar beam will control the airspace by acquiring a hard target return from any solid object in the airsp...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD08-104
Budget: 06/16/09 - 06/16/11

We propose to build in Phase II a compact, rugged laser photoacoustic spectrometric (L-PAS) prototype sensor system (at technology readiness level TRL-6) for continuous, real-time broadband analysis of multiple chemicals. It will incorporate a tunable infrared quantum cascade laser (QCL), photoacoustic cell and air sampler system in a sealed dec...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-029
Budget: 04/29/09 - 10/29/09

Science and Engineering Services. Inc. (SESI) proposes to develop an Aerosol Lidar Velocimeter (ALV) to obtain concurrent three-component wind velocity measurements in the downwash of a rotorcraft operating in shipboard environments. We propose to use a multi-beam lidar system to obtain aerosol backscatter data from the flowfield and to develop ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-050
Budget: 04/01/09 - 09/30/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) is a powerful analytical method having applications in the investigation of three dimensional structures and the structural changes that occur during chemical processes in compounds including clusters, synthetic polymers and biomolecules such as proteins and peptides. It is als...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-451
Budget: 03/15/09 - 09/14/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of this proposal is to develop novel hybrid ion mobility - FTICR instrument. Such combination using a novel ion mobility separation method is thought to extend the range of capabilities of the conventional Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FT-ICR) technique as well as establishing novel w...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-195
Budget: 10/27/08 - 08/27/09

We propose to develop a small wind profiling lidar based on SESI and NASA technology that also produces boundary layer, cloud height, and cloud fraction data products. The wind measurements are based on the well established technique of aerosol structure time-lag correlation using a simple elastic scattering aerosol lidar. Accurate and timely cl...
